New Linux-Based Cloud OS at CloudLinux

by admin on February 8, 2010

For the past 13 years, Igor Seletskiy has developed a series of innovative new products for the hospitality industry, including the control panel H-Sphere, a container-based virtualization product FreeVPS, single-server control panel CP +, Web-based file manager WebShell, and website SiteStudio building tool.

Now Seletskiy is ready to launch CloudLinux (, the first Linux-based, commercially supported operating system optimized for shared hosting providers and data centers in the next Parallels Summit 2010 (www. / Summit).

The job density increases server system by improving stability and reliability through isolation technology to create lightweight virtual environments.

CloudLinux environments deliver property resource management more efficient by reducing the amount of resources of any web site can use, so that no single account can slow down an entire server.

Seletskiy admits that the idea is not entirely CloudLinux different from other Linux operating systems that is available in the industry, such as CentOS or Red Hat. However, where it apart is that CloudLinux is most effective.

“If you look at our operating system is very similar to CentOS or Red Hat,” says Seletskiy. “However, Centos and Red Hat are optimized for business. Shared Hosting market has specific needs, such as density, performance, stability that are very different in how they are perceived and executed. Nobody objectives of this market and anyone have an operating system for hosting this market … What I am trying to do is create an operating system that is really best for this market. ”

Ives offers many other advantages, including improved safety through the implementation of all processes under the correct user and its own lightweight container and protects the server from hackers and poorly written scripts that have resources for other tenants.

The property isolation technology offers a wide range of benefits for shared computers, including increasing the number of accounts per server, and reducing hardware, electrical, data center space and management costs.

As for the data center, which provides customers with a well established, with commercial support and maintain operational safety improvement reduces churn and the costs associated with support issues of security, and income units through upsell additional support for commercial distribution that is optimized for the Web.

“We started offering a beta version,” says Seletskiy. “So far the reaction has been very good. It’s easy for us is fully interchangeable with CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Today anyone can have a server and switch to CloudLinux five minutes and get a lot of stability and density of shared accommodation for the environment.

The company has been offering CloudLinux 5.4 Beta 1 from 13 January, on its website.

Cartika Hosting is just one of our customers is bundling the operating system as part of their hosting packages of services.

Once officially launched at Parallels Summit 2010 CloudLinux OS will cost $ 14 a month for new customers, and $ 4 to $ 8 per month for members.

The conference and trade show Seletskiy discuss how to find the balance between the number of users per server and server load can lead. And Seletskiy explains CloudLinux help shared hosting providers do so more effectively than any other operating system on the market.

“We think with our operating system,” says Seletskiy “hosters can double the number of accounts on their servers hosting their servers even more stable. And that’s one of the servers to look for the most critical aspects when choosing an operating system” .
